Yes...after a teaser week of sun and higher-than-frigid-temps which melted nearly every snowflake, we got hit again. But that didn't stop Jamie from grillin' some burgers for us Sunday night.
They tasted soooo good!
And my oldest, who has always been an avid reader, finished reading the Bible (New Living Translation) in one year.
He was very happy, and let out a big sigh..."I did it!"
His favorite books: 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Job, & Revelation
(He likes history and battles!)
His least favorite: Leviticus & Numbers

As one may conclude, Jenna was not all about playing in this snow. Her eyes were watering from the cold, and her smile was left somewhere in the house...where it was warm.
Nice try, big brother. Still not diggin' this stuff. (No pun intended!)
So, (much to my excitement because I really do NOT like winter), we headed back into the house to bake some cookies.
And she played in water with some kitchen gadgets. No, I'm not making her wash dishes yet!
Mmmmm...she loves cookies. She downed three of them before her brothers even got a chance to eat one!
Here's the crew, enjoying hot chocolate and cookies. Jenna wasn't big on the hot chocolate.
Later, after dinner, she was luring Jacob to chase her through the house. Jacob would "growl" at her with his arms raised, and she would shriek and run in the opposite direction...all while swinging her little bag and puppy. Jacob laughed and said she looked like an "old lady running with her purse."
Charlie got in on the act, too, and they had so much fun with their big brother. These two are funny together...two peas in a pod. God surely knows what he's doing when He places children in a family!

And taking baths with her sister.
Because I won't allow her to eat 2 bananas.
usually followed by whimpers...then sobbing...then screaming...then some good 'ole foot stompin' fun. Her brothers take off running when this happens...usually before the screaming starts. One...because the girl can break eardrums with her volume, and two...they have to stifle their giggles because they can already predict her actions and think her little fits are hilarious.
